Beauty and the devil

Temptations are always beautiful.

If temptations came with an ugly presentation, would we even accede to it?

It’s a good food for thought. We learn from the bible that even the temptation of Jesus Christ was delectably laid out on a silver platter by the Satan. The devil in the bible is proof that the devil is alive and continues to offer man the bounty of material possession and power in exchange of his soul. It gets clouded by us in many forms. Let me put it bluntly. The more beautiful the temptation the more difficult to resist it.

When your principles are compromised or you’ve had that defining moment to even slightly pause and wonder if the temptation of looking the other way from evil or wrong doing is worth it, only you will know the answer.
